Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck (Half-Nelson, Mississippi Grind) with a script they worked on with Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), and Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (GLOW). He is your go-to fella for creator interviews, conversations about comic book structure, and general DC Comics nerding. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more unsafe by their shape-shifting abilities.
Marvel Studios' next big-screen superhero Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, portrayed by Brie Larson, is the focus of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, giving fans their best look yet at the superhero in action.
Judging from these first look photos alone, I'd say the odds are high that Captain Marvel is going to soar. Ronan and Korath are important to Kree in Marvel canon, which means that the film will also act as a bit of an origin story for those two as well - right as it introduces the Skrulls into the MCU.
Avengers: Infinity War ended with the most tantalizing of teases for Marvel's next cinematic superhero, Captain Marvel. Interestingly enough, Marvel Comics has a character named Monica Rambeau, who is one of several iterations of Captain Marvel.
We see Ben Mendelsohn's Talos in his natural green and his shapeshifted human form - both equally intimidating visages for the Skrull leader since his human alter-ego will be undercover at S.H.I.E.L.D. In addition to Larson, you'll recognize other Marvel characters like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) in the movie. The film centers on Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot-turned-spacefaring superhero whose half-human, half-alien (specifically Kree) DNA gives her incredible powers. The fourth "Avengers" is scheduled to hit theaters May 3, 2019. We saw this approach work for films like Black Panther and Spider-Man: Homecoming, so it makes sense they'd take a more creative approach for Captain Marvel.
